Still one of the biggest and most flamboyant bands in the world, U2 have been delighting music fans with their epic and unforgettable tunes for over 30 years. Having developed and grown in stature throughout the 1980s and released one of their very finest with 1991’s ‘Achtung Baby’, by the mid 1990s the band were in danger of slipping into irrelevance.
But instead of allowing themselves to fade away, as did so many of their 1980s contemporaries, the mighty U2 redoubled their efforts, reapplied for the job of ‘best band in the world’, grabbed new fans while reigniting the old faithful and entered the new millennium with the explosive ‘All That You Can’t Leave Behind’, a record that put four aging white men in their forties on the cover of NME.
The ‘noughties’ saw U2 make two further astonishing albums, perform the most ambitious and glorious concerts in the history of show business and end the decade with the very welcome news that Dublin’s finest will headline the 40th Glastonbury Festival.
This two DVD set tells the complete story of this extraordinary rebirth, and details the modern incarnation of U2 through interviews with the band, rare and unseen footage, contributions and analysis from those closest to the group over this period, plentiful archive film material and a host of other features which ultimately make for the finest U2 documentary yet to emerge.
